If Looks Could Kill

Hello, hello! I recently made the decision to avoid blogging when I'm feeling mad/tired/negative/passive-aggressive/whiny. I want my blog to be a positive place with cool outfits and fun content (design! photography! art! food!), therefore I vow to avoid ranting all the time about my busy/completely insane college schedule and terrible adventures on the town bus. I don't think you guys want to read a blog with posts such as ''Oh, hey, I'm tired. Here's what I wore. Oh, and I tore up my tights. Bleh. Bye''. I wouldn't either! That's why I've been pretty discreet over the last weeks. I started to feel like my blog was slowly morphing itself into a soap opera (too many projects = nervousness = ranting), so I simply took a break. From now on, when I'll be tempted to write about negative stuff, I'll take a breath, keep the FML part to myself and go straight to the point: the clothes I wore, the projects I worked on and the good stuff that happened to me. 

So that was it for my Manifesto of Positiveness! Here is an outfit from two weeks ago. I'm looking for ways to maximize my wardrobe's potential, so I tucked a shirtdress into a leather skirt. Tadam! A new blouse! The best part of this combo is that I can mix and match various colours of tights and cardigans. Black and white clothes are a great canvas to try an infinite number of colour pairings around them. I could wear this outfit with a yellow cardigan and red tights, or vice versa. Note to self: try to calculate the number of different possibilities... Haha! I should work on a ''Get the most of your wardrobe with tights and cardigans'' post. Really! :)

Dress: H&M (35 $) // Skirt: thrifted (13 $) // Cardigan: thrifted (5$)
Tights: Ardene (3 $)  // Shoes: thrifted (10 $)

Camera Obscura - If Looks Could Kill


  1. Careful with that dress! I hang dried mine, and it still shrunk two full sizes.

    1. Yes... Unfortunately that's what rayon does... Now that I washed it, it barely covers my butt. Pretty deceiving. Thank god the dress is not too tight - I can still wear it with very opaque tights and longer cardigans.

  2. Love the color of the cardigan and the tights <3 and yes! Is always easier to mix colorful tights with b&w clothes... Is a good resolution that one of staying away from blogger when in a bad mood, I go to tumblr in those cases and rant there xD then delete it. Love the dress and is cool as a shirt too :)

  3. oh I like your shoes! great color :)

  4. So cute! Love this look!

  5. I love your leather skirt and the print on that dress is so cute! Yes, it's nice to use blogging as a way to get away from it all and be positive :)
